    As much as I'd like to be able to purchase an affordable brand new Raptor, it'd be interesting to compare them to JL Scrambler..

    First we need a Ranger, before we can even get a baby Raptor.

    With full size Pickups getting so very large I don't want to own one, We need a new Dakota. I know the Jeep is coming but I will bet that it is VERY costly. Just a basic mid size truck would work for me.

    That grill shape is similar to the DT Ram.

    I hate that the Ranger is going to have its own design instead of sharing the tough, square look of the full size trucks. It looks...kind of wimpy.

    I did say similar and I'm talking shape meaning the general outside lines.

    Right! The overall outside shape is very similar.

    You can see which design team had the look first.

    It's definitely a safe design. Not very exciting. Hopefully the power train is better.

    The new trucks you need a ladder to get into the cab and the bed. The 99-2004 Dakota was a great size for a real work truck. The bed was much bigger then the S-10 and Ranger. With a little massage it could have 48 inches between the wheel wells.
    I don't know how a working man can afford a new truck. Its funny in 1969 the pickup was the cheapest thing on the lot, cheaper then a dart or nova.
    A modern size Dakota should sell for the high teens to low 20's
